SAN FRANCISCO, 18 April 2022: Seso, a San Francisco, CA-based workforce management platform for agriculture, closed USD 25m in Series A funding.
Index Ventures led the round, with participation from NFX and Founders Fund, K5 Ventures, Operator Partners, Shrug Capital, and The Chainsmokers' Mantis Fund, as well as the founders of ServiceTitan, Flexport, Ramp, Workrise (formerly Rigup), and Motive (formerly KeepTruckin) and large farms in the United States.
The funds will be used to develop additional HR software and financial services, allowing workers to gain access to the financial system for the first time.
Led by Michael Guirguis, Founder and CEO, and Jordan Taylor, said, Seso is building an end-to-end recruiting and workforce management platform for the agriculture industry, which provides compliance, visa automation, applicant tracking, and workforce management tools.
Seso simplifies the application process for the H-2A visa programme. It also provides agricultural employers with qualified labour via a database of thousands of H-2A workers.
The software assists farms across the country in locating harvesters, communicating with workers, and tracking workflows. Seso helps farms maintain labour compliance, transitions farms to digital (removing paperwork), and enables farms to do their own recruitment by centralising workforce management.
